(This is a really obscure shot at BJJ. because of their head outside singles.)
It's also used in Chinese wrestling too.
If we compare these 3 methods, IMO, the "double under hooks" may be the safest one to use. The timing is not that critical. As long as you put both hands in front of your knees, your opponent's hands can't reach to your leg/legs.
I think that has been another reason for BJJ's relatively fast progress - both in growth and in development.
There is a local guy near me I took 2 private wrestling classes with. Worked on takedowns and sprawls, the very very basics. He teaches mostly high school and said I could practice with them. I decided against it and went into BJJ/Judo. You're right, it's very hard to find wrestling once you're past high school/college.
In many parts of the world though this is not the case....like Dagestan LOL.
Kimura takedown for single (don't know how common that is, but it works), and the Sprawl, Guillotine, or Guard for Double Leg.
For a masterclass in defending the single look at Roger Gracie vs Buchecha
